Pours a dull chestnut with a respectable bone-colored head. Aroma is dark fruits, sweet macerated figs or raisins mixed with candy sugar.
Taste is surprisingly dry, lots of bready, musty caramel malt flavors. Some mild dark fruit, maybe some prune juice or cola, finish is very slightly sweet. Classic dubbel flavors, very solid and sessionable.
Mouthfeel is medium, not real heavy, quite drinkable. My impression is of an abbey ale with training wheels -- not to imply it is lesser, by any means -- but without the depth and complexity of its higher-ABV bretheren. I may like it even better this way.

Pater 6 pours a cloudy amber color with no head. There is a very dry and very sweet aroma, with some dry grape almost wine like notes. The taste is dry and very very sweet, with some grape notes, and has a wine like flavor. The flavors are good and strong, but very flat feel. Overall its nice, but very very sweet, and too sweet for me.

Bottle dated 14 03 16 at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of fresh bread which gives away to a heavy malt odor
Head average (4.5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 4 mm ring with center island
Lacing poor – a few irregular islands which slide back down to the ring.
Body dark brown, hazy from yeast from the pour
Flavor starts with heavy brown sugar and over-ripe date sweetness which slowly fades to an unpleasant sourness
Palate full, syrupy, lively carbonation
This tasted pretty decadent until the terminal sourness rolled in. After that, it was a literal bad taste in the mouth.
